Sweeteners Sweeteners are healthy alternatives to sweetening and replacing regular table sugar. In this category, you will find premium certified Manuka types of honey with a high proportion of the bioactive ingredient MGO and pollen, or other natural sweeteners such as coconut sugar, agave syrup, stevia, xylitol and erythritol. Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index compared to regular sugar, and at the same time contains beneficial vitamins and minerals. Agave fructose-based syrup is popular with people who have problems digesting sucrose, in addition to including a minimum of calories. Xylitol, birch extract, which has a low glycemic index and contributes to tooth mineralization, also has half the energy value compared to sugar. Erythritol is also a natural sweetener, but it contains no calories and has a zero glycemic index, as well as the most popular calorie-free stevia sweetener. These sweeteners are an excellent sweetening option for people who guard their calories, their blood sugar levels, want to lose weight, or simply want to avoid regular sugar.
